The unhinged and violent left in Seattle - Updated

Scroll for updates

Think back to, oh, every day since conservatives started standing up for their beliefs and their values. Think about the blatant and ongoing attempts by sycophants like MSNBC and the New York Times to tie conservatism, Republicans, tea partiers, talk radio, alternative blogs, etc. to hatred, incivility, hate crimes, murder, constipation, bad grades, bad breath, nose bleeds, male pattern baldness, did I say hate yet?

From David Boze's website, a treat from the Seattle Weekly blog lamenting the bygone era of unions using mafioso techniques to intimidate and silence opponents with physical brutality (I've included screen shots at the bottom in case they try to take it down later). The money quote:
...we can't help but feel nostalgic for days long gone . . . When, instead, a simple knock on the door and well-timed threat would be enough to solve any disagreement. . . But doesn't a situation like 1033, where we're literally stealing money from old people and kids, call for something more direct? Like a kneecapping?
But, I'm sure he was just joking. And you know what? Fine. I can handle satire or facetiousness, even if disturbing. What I have a hard time swallowing is the deliberate and demonstrable hypocrisy and outright double standards against conservatives. Though sometimes it's not even a double standard. Sometimes it is just complete and total fabrication of "hate." Two examples below.

Michelle Malkin was highlighted as some sort of inciter of hate on the front page of Sunday edition of the Washington Post for sending a totally bland and benign information request to the woman who wrote the book, "I am Barack Obama" and had a hand in helping those kids sing that "mmm mmm mmm" song about Obama. Somehow her innocuous email (which was even reprinted by the author who used it as proof of Michelle's derangement) was so hateful (go and read it, it is the most boring email ever) that it compelled Keith Olbermann to label Michelle as a "big mashed up bag of meat with lipstick."

The second example is MSNBC's current Rush Limbaugh fetish. They are literally slandering Rush Limbaugh by saying that he supports slavery and therefore should not be able to purchase the Rams football team. People keep asking them to provide the quote and they can't. However, this has not stopped them from saying it over and over again in order to so totally sabotage his plans to buy the Rams. The "reporters" and their guests are saying that Rush can't wait to own a football team filled with black men so that he can feel like he's running a plantation. Seriously. And again, they have absolutely no proof of anything. Allahpundit at Hot Air is suggesting Rush sue for slander, and if he loses out on his bid for the Rams, I certainly hope he does because he could directly connect his loss to their lies.

So, when a liberal writer "jokes" about kneecapping a private citizen who operates completely within the confines of the law when he sponsors a completely legal iniative, which the journalistic ingrate from the Seattle Weekly may vote against (that's how democracy works, FYI), and his "hateful" and "violent" words go unpunished or even unanswered from the mainstream media, is it any wonder the MSM is floundering? Is it any wonder that no one trusts them anymore?

Update: Over at Big Government, Kurt Sclichter puts the Rush thing very simply:

An American political leader is demanding that a private business not do business with an American citizen because she does not approve of his politics.

He is referring to "Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas), who urged the NFL not to allow Rush’s bid to buy some team." He's right. An American politician who should address real possible ethics violations, as opposed to the made up crap about Rush, is trying to interfere in a private business deal due to one person's political views. Welcome to the twilight zone.
